I think the Watkins Glen Soundcheck show is the jazziest and the Cole Field House performance is the best post '73 version. I've watched the video from 10-31-80 many times and it is amazing every time I see it!

Watkins Glen was my first thought as well when it comes to Bird Song. I believe it is Phil, who right before they start, steps to the mic and utters, "this whole thing is a fraud, were really clever androids." Classic line before this mesmerizing version. Something must have been in the kool-aid before this unexpected show. Its basically a free show which added to the laid back and hey, lets just play to the crowd vibe going on this night. Don't forget the jam which comes a little later as well.

Hey Charlie Miller, was the audible tape flip(?) or glitch at around 4:54 on this copy of Birdsong, just one of those tape anomalies that can not be extracted and cleaned up from the originals? Inquiring minds would like to know? Thank you for everything you have done to make this a incredible place to come and hear my favorite band. Peace
